There is nothing better than getting reaquainted with family, especially when it is during the holidays.
When my sister, Karen, passed away in November, I would never have thought that her family would come to stay ten days with us. The laughter has done us all well. Just being able to enjoy those relationships that mean so much to me - especially considering that we do not spend very much time together due to ministry demands and distance.
It has been a delightful holiday.
